The East Coast Divers CCR Diving program provides you with the knowledge and training necessary to independently plan and conduct closed-circuit rebreather (CCR) dives to a maximum depth of 100 feet, using a CCR Total Diving System with air as diluent and CCR diving procedures, with an equally- or more-qualified dive team.
Rebreathers, otherwise known as closed-circuit rebreathers (CCR’s), used to only be for technical diving, but not anymore. Rebreathers today have sophisticated electronics to simplify their use. They are mostly standardized in their operation. Training has become more consistent and rebreather performance has become more predictable.
Why dive a rebreather?
You get longer no stop limits, reduced gas consumption, and unmatched wildlife encounters because you don’t release noisy bubbles. Your dives will also be warmer due to the exothermic reaction of the CO2 filter material. Rebreathers will unlock a world of deeper more technical diving without dramatic changes in the equipment that you need or they can be used to greatly extend shallow dives without the same stress of gas monitoring that some divers experience during open-circuit (OC) diving. A rebreather can be your one stop shop for all of the diving you do while also unlocking a whole new world of opportunities.
East Coast Divers CCR Rebreather Diving course will introduce you to the design, build and function of the rebreather of your choice and then teach you how to master it.
